If you thought it was disgusting and disturbing that former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was out walking around freely (as I certainly did) then you will no doubt exact a measure of satisfaction, a sense of justice from today’s news story.
I mean the guy lived across the street from an elementary school- how f***d up is that? And does/did have a wife? Who the f** marries a child molester? Then again, two women married a tree killing Alabama fan hillbilly, so I guess anything is possible.
Sandusky was arrested and arraigned Wednesday on new sex abuse charges brought forward by two new accusers.
The charges stem from new accusers who were questioned by a grand jury last month. One one of the victims claims he was assaulted after meeting Sandusky in 1997 and the other alleges that he was assaulted in 2004.
Here’s more from ESPN.com
A judge set Sandusky’s bail at $250,000 cash. Sandusky must wear an electronic monitoring bracelet and he is barred from Penn State property.
A call seeking comment from Sandusky’s lawyer, Joseph Amendola, was not immediately returned.
Sandusky was already charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse involving eight young boys over a 15-year span. He has denied being a pedophile and has vowed to fight the case. In interviews with NBC and The New York Times, he has said he showered and horsed around with boys but never sexually abused them.
The new charges include four counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and two counts of unlawful contact with a minor, all of them first-degree felonies punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $25,000 in fines.
Sandusky also was charged with a count of indecent assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of children. Those are third-degree felonies punishable by up to seven years in prison and $15,000 in fines.
But don’t you only have to make 10% bail to get back out on the streets? Sorry, everything I know about this type of thing I learned from Snoop Dogg and 2pac lyrics. $25,000 likely isn’t much to Sandusky, I’m sure he’s saved a ton lot of money from his days as the right hand man to Joe Paterno.
Sadly, he might be back out before this post goes live.
